Is this hardware only compatible with iOS devices or is it also compatible with Android smartphones and tablets?

I'm considering signing up with PayAnywhere and buying this reader (as it features ApplePay, SamsungPay, and AndroidPay capability, unlike the free reader they give you when signing up). However, starting out I may have to use it with both iOS and Android devices. I know that the PayAnywhere app is available on both platforms, but is this hardware compatible with Android or just iOS?
From the looks of it, with the headphone jack placed where it is, it looks like it is designed for iPhones and iPads, and could probably also be plugged into most Android phones and tablets as well but I want to make sure it will actually work on both before buying.
